Well I start my computer every morning. (actually starts itself
) Then I usually close it when I leave to school. Then open it when I come from school and close it at night when I go to sleep.
In the morning I just shut it down (via windows ofcourse) and turn of the monitor. At night I use this program, think it just leaves power to the mobo, all of the fans etc stop. This allows it to start by itself at the morning.
